    Hi everybody.
    My wife's side mirrors have packed up and gone on holiday! She had been having problems with them doing thier own thing but now nothing.
    I have checked fuses and had the door panel off to check for chafed/broken wires, all OK. the switch was replaced before they stopped and had been working well, even putting the old one back in as it still worked before but nowt. Where is the ECU positioned, it's not in the door as I suspected. I'm thinking maybe a replacement will sort things out, or any suggestions?
    Many thanks
    Murray

    It's likely to be in with the electric seats, as I believe it comes under the memory function of the seats and mirrors.

    If both mirrors are not working then fuse 57(5 amp) is the fuse for them.
    If the car has mirror memory modules (little black box)then they will be inside the door panels and you will deffo see them.
    Other than the above then it is the gm5 module that needs looking at.

    Its a grey unit about the size of a vhs cassette and its buried in at the back of the fusebox.
    But please don't go and get a replacement gm5 just because I mentioned the gm5 module but according to BMW WDS the mirrors are controlled
    by the gm5 if the car doesn't have mirror modules on the door.So I recommend you look at BMW WDS and satisfy yourself as to the cause of the issue.
